About the author

CC MACKENZIE is a USA Today bestselling author, which means she no longer does laundry or grocery shopping.

Born in Scotland, she could write her name when she was three and excelled in English. In spite of failing Math, she went on to a successful career in International Banking specialising in trade finance, which just goes to show Karma has a hilarious sense of humour. Once upon a time she was dared to dance with cheer leading pompoms to Love Shack by the b-52's on top of a moving truck. She did and she has the pics to prove it.

Readers have dubbed her books "made me laugh and made me cry", "hot" and "page turners" all of which have delighted her enough to put in her bio, but humbled her enough not to tell her H in case he wants to bring her down a peg or two and make her do her own laundry.

If you meet CC in the flesh, you should call her Christine. She writes hot fairy tales for adults, contemporary romantic comedy and futuristic paranormal romance thrillers.

CC loves to hear from her readers.

Introduction - Ellie - The Golddiggers Book 1

Succumbing to temptation isn't an option.


"I sure didn't intend to see him.

Or fall for him.

Or have anything to do with the mesmerizing Noah Blake.

Meeting him had been a complete and utter shock to the system. My reaction took me by surprise. In my line of work, I meet new people all the time and none of them impressed me the way Noah did. Isn't that just typical in life? A girl can meet hundreds of people and they don't touch her where it matters, but then she meets the one who means everything...

But I'm getting ahead of myself. Thing is, I'm a Golddigger, and proud of it. We make the Pussycat Dolls look like kittens. We work hard to achieve one goal, being the best. And to do that we do not need distractions like, for example, men. A Golddigger's focus is on one thing, her performance. A Golddigger's priority is the continued success of our Burlesque troupe. Thing is, I learned the hard way men didn't like coming a poor second in a woman's life. They appeared to be panic-stricken by a career driven, successful woman. I've been called "hard work," "stroppy," and "pigheaded.

Like the rest of the Golddiggers, being free of emotional ties works well for me. Trust me, I had no long term plan to live happy-ever-after.

But then I met Noah.

And he stole my diamanté encrusted panties, and my whole world fell apart..."

This is a stand alone short half hour read novel with no cliff-hangers.

The Trouble With Coco Monroe


Think The Bodyguard meets Gossip Girl


Coco Monroe is the apple of her Billionaire father's eye. But it's a love that comes with conditions. Desperate, Coco makes a bid for freedom. Head of Global Operations & Security for Monroe Industries, Rafael Cavendish lost Coco once. When her life is in danger from the Russian Mafia he has no problem taking matters into his own hands. But Coco's had enough of controlling men. Lord Rafael Cavendish needs to be taught a salutary lesson and she's just the Monroe to do it.


‘Sometimes, being the only daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the country seriously sucked.’ 

The Fall of Jacob Del Garda

Twin sisters - twice the trouble

Twelve months after disappearing from Jacob's life, the woman who broke his heart, supermodel Gabriella Dolman, is back. But things have changed. Now Gabriella is a photographer - still fabulously beautiful - but no longer glamorous, and no longer looking for love. Though Gabriella claims she just wants to move on without him, Jacob's pretty certain that her reaction to their red-hot kisses implies otherwise.


Tobin Gillespie believes in taking a stand, and he never turns his back on a challenge. So when his work as a PR guru brings research scientist Sophie Dolman back into his life, her obnoxious behaviour and lethal put downs aren't enough to put him off - quite the reverse. And the more they clash, the more determined he is to break down the wall around her heart and claim it for his own.
